    I'm a photographer. The two terabytes is filled with pictures/movies/games. I'm working on getting another SSD for just games, but I need at least 256 GB, and right now I just can't justify it.

    I do backup my pictures to an online site, but I like having copies on my computer.

    I should post a picture of mine, it's dusty and messy and has fans just balanced in the case in places, but it's still a nice cool machine, it's just a shame about the window so I have to see the mess (would of also been easier to drill new holes in the side if it was a metal plate) still considering putting a hole in the base and filters under the case to have a bit extra air intake for the graphics/hard drives.

    the lesson to air cooling is, you can never have too many 120/140mm fans since airflow is the most important things going, have considered water cooling but know people who have had bad experiences with it, just wish England had wide use of air con in houses, a friend in Canada has a pipe from his aircon straight into his case (on a side not it can also keep beer cold) still don't get how it doesn't get any moisture build up but it works well.

    Most of my music collection, that I had on CD, are in lossless on my computer. The newer songs that I've downloaded through Zune are obviously not, but I'm pushing about 100gb of music - and I still have a lot of music I need to go through :/

    A lot of people going for the self-contained CPU water-coolers I see.

    Nice, clean and easy way to keep an OC'ed i7 cool I reckon.
